Yep, would agree with all of that from what I've seen so far.Hi Paul. The Celtic Rambler has got to be probably the pick of the bunch of english built regards quality build etc but they seem to be quite expensive and also when you check out their website there seems to be an awful lot of extras that you can pay for some of which would be standard on US built fives..
I'm particularly keen to find out more about which ones are legal to import, weight and width wise also which ones have the required extra braking that seems to be necessary for the UK. Have been perusing the American secondhand sale lists and have come across some real quality made fivers like Newmar etc for ridiculously cheap prices. Has anybody imported any of these from the states I wonder and what pitfalls could one expect. .
I'm leaning more and more to one of these instead of fulltiming eventually in an RV .
It seems to me that these fivers have all the luxury of an RV without having all the high running costs. .
There seems to be an interest in Fivers in this country but not a lot is known about them. Where can one go to get some more knowledge on them. Every post I have read from owners in this country has been positive and I and others would like to know more. There seems to be only a few dealers involved in selling them namely the fifth wheel company and Calder leisure. Does anybody else have more info please.
Thanks for that paul. Didnt realise you were already retired .
They seem expensive for what they are but when you think we can pay 60k for a top of the range 3 axle autotrail a Celtic Rambler and reasonable pick up only costs marginally more and gives a lot more space and luxury and more importantly would let us out of towing or carrying a second vehicle to get around while on site.
e more comfortable for fulltiming.
Just a couple of thoughts from across the pond.
